According to the family members, the woman was already being treated by Dr Nidhi Agarwal. On Thursday morning, Dr Agarwal called the woman’s husband Rohit and said that delivery will have to be done through operation, otherwise the child and the mother may die. After the operation, mother and child will be completely safe. Hearing this, Rohit gave his consent for the operation. After this the woman was taken to operation theatre. After the operation, the woman gave birth to a healthy girl child, but her health continued to deteriorate and she died on the operation table within a short time.
